LGBTQ+ International: Global Queer Identities- Part of OGSD Hxstory & Celebration Days & International Education Week
Monday, October 14th 3-4pm in the O (LBC G04)
Come and join the Office of Study Abroad and the Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity for an presentation, discussion, and snacks! The presentation and discussion will be led by Meredith Connelly, Study Abroad Advisor.
LGBTQ+ individuals must ask themselves a unique set of questions when considering what external factors may impact their overall experience and safety abroad. Students should have equal access to study abroad regardless of sex, gender identity or sexual orientation. Studying abroad for LGBTQ+ students can be not only a life-changing educational experience, it can also present an opportunity to further awareness and acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community on a global scale. Our goal is to provide both LGBTQ+ students and allies with the resources required to facilitate the safest and most fulfilling international education experience possible.
